Baby lose that frying pan
You don't live to feed that man
Nothing's gained through self denial
'Cause you weren't born to be servile
Don't you know you gotta

Rise (think about what you do now)
Rise (where do you belong)
Rise (are you somebody's niggababe)
Rise (or does the fight go on)

Do you think the hurting is gonna go away
If you leave uprising for another day
Hey mister! Better teach your child to run
From all you name as just harmless fun
Do you show respect everywhere you go
Do you teach the young man how to treat your own
Don't you know you gotta

Rise (think about what you do now)
Rise (how do you behave)
Rise (would you leave your children)
Rise (what you see today)

Freedom to the children of the world
Think about what you do now
Everything you see
Life ain't living in a magazine
Life ain't living
Sister! Why do you trade it in
For a diamond chip and a rabbit skin
His big red car is might too fast
And it wasn't built for the ride to last
Freedom to the slave of the slave
(And you know you are)
